What am I learning today?

How to write molecular, full ionic, and net ionic equations.

Why am I learning this?

Chemical equations help us understand what his happening quantitatively on a molecular level when chemicals react.

How will I known that I have succeeded?

I can mix known solutions, observe precipitate formation, and write a net ionic equation to represent this reaction.


  • HW Check & Warm Up
    • A solution of copper(II) nitrate is mixed with a solution of calcium hydroxide.  Write a balanced chemical equation to indicate the products that would form as a result of this reaction.
    • Sketch a particulate diagram of the two solutions before the mixing and a diagram of the resulting solution after mixing.  Start with 5 ions of each type and clearly provide a key to which shape represents which ion.
